We voice out issues on behalf of the international business community

There are various channels where the foreign business community and our members can voice issues to the Thai government. The NTCC mediates among these channels making sure that your voices are heard; be it work permit issues, to sector-specific regulations.

Joint Foreign Chambers of Commerce (JFCCT)

There are some 30 foreign Chambers of Commerce in Thailand, the majority of which forms the Joint Foreign Chambers of Commerce (JFCCT). The Presidents of the Foreign Chambers meet monthly to discuss issues that are of interest to foreign investors. These issues are then raised through to the Thai government so that solutions can be found. The NTCC is particularly focused on trade- and tourism- related issues within these JFCCT working groups which are both represented by Dutch representatives.

European Association for Business & Commerce (EABC)

The NTCC participates in the European Association of Business & Commerce (EABC), set up with the support of the European Union. The EABC intends to contribute to improve the European trade and investment environment in Thailand and to increase European exports and investment in Thailand. More specifically, the EABC is set up to facilitate market access for European companies in Thailand and to promote Thailand and ASEAN as high potential markets for European companies.
